Curious How Kourtney Kardashian Chose Her Baby Name?

Back in December, we wrote about Kourtney Kardashian's new baby, named Mason Dash.  Now, courtesy of Life & Style, we have a little more information on what drove the baby name choice.

Kourtney tells Life & Style that she loved the name Mason from the start, but that late in her pregnancy, she confided to an aunt that it was her name of choice. According to Kardashian, "She [the aunt]  told me that Mason means the same thing in English that Kardashian means in Armenian -- stone worker. Another aunt told me my great uncle used to use the name Mason when he made dinner reservations, because Kardashian was too long. When I heard that, I thought, Oh my god, it's meant to be."

As for the middle name Dash, while it is famously the name of Kardashian's clothing boutique, it was also her dad's nickname.  So Mason Dash is actually a double-node to her family.

Here at NameCandy.com, also home of The Name Lady, we often hear from parents looking for ways to honor a parent or grandparent without bowing to names that sound outdated or just aren't their style.  Kourtney Kardashian has certainly found a creative solution.

What do you think of the name Mason Dash?  Do you think Kourtney has found a clever way to honor her family name? What are some creative namesakes you've heard lately?
